Today is the First Day of School!

And it's also the beginning of my official countdown to Christmas! 

Yes. Christmas. 

With Christmas so close (only like 18 Friday's away!) I'm starting to gear up and make things for my Christmas Tree.  Did you know that you can make Christmas Ornaments with Kiwi Lane Design Templates?  You Can! And I did!  Actually it really happened entirely by accident.  I was sitting in my Craft Room playing with the templates, moving them around, and thinking..."what can I make?"  And then I saw was as Angel. No not in the distance...i saw it on my table with templates! :0) 

But why Christmas now?  Can't we focus on Halloween, or Thanksgiving?  Nope.  I needed to make an Angel!

Making the Angels were easy!  All you need are a base, a head, some wings and a halo...or in Templates all you needed was a Ring (or a Badge from Playtime Template Pack), A Balloon, A Cloud, and a smaller Ring. Each Angel is Sewn together ( of her were hot glued), had their face sewn on, and then they needed to be dressed.  And that's where Mon Ami Gabby came in handy!  I used some beautiful Lace Trim from Mon Ami Gabby.  I think the trim gave each of the Angels the perfect look! 

If you'd like to make an Angel too here are the Kiwi Lane Design Templates that I used: 
Playtime:  6
Rings: 1, 4

Cut one Ring. 
 Do not Cut the inner ring. This is the Angle's Body. 

Cut the Ring in Half. 

 Cut two Balloons.  Sew a Face on one of the Balloons, then sew the two together and stuff with Fiber Fill. 

 Using the Celebrate 5T Template, cut two clouds out of heavy cardstock.  Then Cover with Material, such as felt.  I used felt on one side and some material from Mon Ami Gabby

Using the Ring 1 Template, cut one Ring from Felt.  
Do not cut out the inner Ring. 

Cut in half. 

For each of the Rings that you cut in half, apply adhesive to one side of the Ring and adhere together.  You will do this with One of the large Ring Halves and both of the smaller Ring halves.  The Large Ring half is the Body of the Angel.  The smaller Ring Halves are the Angles arms. 

Then all you have to do is Glue everything together!   


Don't forget!  Be sure to stop by and visit Mon Ami Gabby on Facebook!  Like them on Pinterest!  Or, You could also do one of my favorite things....go Shopping!  I'm sure you'll find something pretty and sparkly to play with too!

Thanks for stopping by and have a GREAT day!
